Clemson tied the game in the bottom of the third inning when Chris Williams flied out to right field, allowing Logan Davidson to come home from third base with the tying run.
The Tigers were aided by three Louisville errors in the inning, including a catcher’s interference when Chase Pinder was at the plate with no outs. But Seth Beer watched strike three for the first out before Williams’ sacrifice tied the game at 3-3.
Andrew Cox grounded out to second base to end the inning.
Louisville’s three errors gave it four of the game. It had not had more than three errors in any game all season.
Clemson’s lone hit in the inning came from Reed Rohlman, who singled to right field and moved to second base on an error by Cardinals’ right fielder Josh Stowers.
